SAYREVILLE - A local salon helped raise money for three kids with cancer during an event in Sayreville today.

It was a party-like atmosphere outside Isabella’s Hair Salon during the Cutting Away Cancer benefit. Organizers hoped to raise about $10,000.

All of the money will go to three local kids, Samantha Carey, 14, Kaitlyn Kehoe, 14 and 2-year-old Tyler Sanzone, who was diagnosed with cancer of the retina at 4 months old.

Tyler's mother says her son is currently cancer-free, but he must constantly go for check-ups that are very costly.

The event featured a DJ and a charity auction.
